Landing the STS-120 Space Shuttle: two hours before touchdown

About two hours before the orbiter touches down to earth the crew puts on their orange suits and strap themselves into their seats.

“During this time, the astronauts also begin to drink large quantities of fluid to help their bodies readjust to Earth’s gravity after landing.”
